Scott loves puzzles, I know......I have a puzzle for anyone who has a clue. I came home tonight and went to my mailbox for the mail and found it taped shut. Nothing tough to remove--just a long piece of masking tape across the door. My logical mind said "must have something in there putting pressure on the door and the mailman was nice enough to tape it to keep it closed". Nope. Three little envelopes.
The door latches fine--nothing is broken. I replaced the piece of crap mailbox that was previously here. It was mounted on a rotting piece of plywood and leaking. Mailboxes were so cheap at Home Depot that I invested in one to replace it and skip waiting for the property maintenance folks to send someone to put chewing gum on the leak and leave.
Back to the mystery. Nothing was damaged--not vandalism. Nothing appears to be missing (got that stimulus check yesterday--guess it is safe!). Just a tidy piece of tape across the door.
I'm adding a photo (simulation) of how it looked. The original piece of tape was too balled up from me playing with it on the way to the house. I happened to have a piece of masking tape roughly the same size as the one I removed. (see below)
